No budget? No Problem.

Happy Halloween everybody! This weekend we had a little Fall Festival at our church. Cory and I are both assigned to be on the activities committee, which means we get to help plan fun stuff to do! Our budget was a little tight, so we were going to dispose of the decorations portion...but for some reason, that just killed a little part of my soul. So, the hunt was on for some easy, fun, fall decorations, that would also cost zero dollars.

This is what we came up with: (I didn't have time/the foresight to take pictures at the festival Friday night, so this is my super glam backyard. Try not to be jealous)

FSU gives away free campus newspapers! So, we put those to work. Freya at The Creative Outlet found the idea for some super cute newspaper pinwheels. They were really easy to make! She also inspired me with her post about a print out pennant banner, which I basically ripped off. Thats how we roll.

Just glued on some letters to the pinwheels: Instant banner!

Here's our Welcome Sign. I can't wait to make a ton more of these for every holiday. All you need is cardstock, a printer, hole punch and some ribbon.

And, just a little bit more Halloween goodness:

I babysit a super sweet 8 year old girl after school 3 days a week. To get into the spirit of things this week we decided to mod podge a little pumpkin. If you look closely, you can see that the devil is frowning...

Happy Halloween!!!
